I need to find affordable conveyancing in Headington , we are on a tight budget.


Confusion over this topic affects many homeowners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing. However additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Any disbursements to be paid should also be included on the conveyancing quote Any additional fees ought to be reasonable and clear.


I have a pressing need for especially fast Headington solicitors - is that you guys?


Our chosen solicitors have an extremely take charge method when finishing the necessary legal work.

We only allocate you to conveyancing property lawyers who are focused on speed and attempt to communicate throughout the buyer and seller chain . In addition , our panel of conveyancers are selected because they all employ the best land registry integrated systems meaning they can exchange on the legal process in the shortest time.


Are conveyancing searches that important?


Searches are a prescribed set of enquiries carried out on behalf of the purchaser. They are not a substitute for a survey.


If I am buying in the parish of Whitchurch, should we get a chancel search?

A property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. In Headington's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a home where parish councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Are there many conservation areas in the area?


Conservation areas conserve areas of historic or architectural significance. The local council will advise further about local conservation areas, and the property solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.


Might the property legal fees hide any hidden costs?


Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden costs under any circumstances. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, which they will not be bound to.


Does my professional conveyancing solicitor in Headington report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax for a Band an apartment prior to exchange?


The property solicitor will write to the council to enquire about the applicable council tax band and rates, which will subsequently be added to the report on title.

The latest council tax rates for Headington are detailed at the Oxford council site. Currently (04 December 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £1,055.00
  • Band B - £1,231.00
  • Band C - £1,407.00

  • Band E - £1,935.00
  • Band F - £2,287.00
  • Band G - £2,638.00
  • Band H - £3,166.00


How early do we need to speak to a conveyancer in Headington?


With few exceptions, the earlier, the better, as the legal work can begin immediately. Some recommend postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.
